Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and gives information on the way your information is collected and used. The notice is available on every appropriate page of the site.
Virus Bulletin abides by the following guidelines for email delivery:
We only collect your IP address and the information provided by your browser when you visit our main Site.
Virus Bulletin uses non-identifying and aggregate information in order to improve the design and functionality of the Site and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Every time a user visits the Site we store a log of the visit that shows: the IP address of the machine used to access the Internet, the browser used, the time and length of the visit, the pages visited, the referring site (where appropriate), and whether any page requests were unsuccessful.
In general this information is collected and processed in aggregate, and no attempt is made to link this information back to the user, or to identify them from the information provided. The data is used to help us to understand which areas of the Site are popular, as well as identify which pages are not being requested. It also tells us how many people are visiting the Site in total. We may occasionally attempt to contact you through these details if necessary, including, without limitation, when you are using the wrong paths to access the Site or are breaching restrictions on the use of the Site. We may also use this information to block IP addresses where there is a breach of the Terms and Conditions for use of the Site.
In general, you can visit Virus Bulletin’s website without telling us who you are or giving any personal information about yourself. However, when you enquire about, order or request a sample of our products/services, or when you fill out a survey or feedback form, you may be required to provide personal data such as your name, company, job title, address, telephone number, email address and credit card details (in the case of placing an order). If you forward information to us electronically or as a hard copy, we will collect that information and use it for the purposes for which you have provided it. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.
Virus Bulletin will not pass your personal data to any other companies or organizations without your express permission. Unless we have your permission, we will not disclose your personal information except where we are obliged to do so or allowed to do so by law, or where we need to do so in order to run our business (for instance where we outsource services or other people process data for us).
We endeavour to hold all personal information securely in accordance with our internal security procedures and English law.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make every effort to protect your personal information, Virus Bulletin cannot ensure and does not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and this information is transmitted at your own risk.

If you want to request any information about your personal data or believe that we are holding incorrect personal data on you, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. It is possible to obtain a copy of the information that we hold on you. A nominal charge of £10 is made to cover administrative costs involved.
We reserve the right to amend or vary this policy at any time and the revised policy will apply from the date posted on the Site. You accept that by doing this, Virus Bulletin has provided you with sufficient notice of the amendment or variation.
